In the Midst of Redemption’s Story

What carries us through the daily warzone? The knowledge that we’re in the midst of redemption’s story, in which the Author of all life is the Author of our lives, working every scene together for good. We may think it’s over, but in His hands, it’s not over until He says so. Only the Author can determine the end.
